Aside from some certain chairs in our house, most of our chair sitting time is spent on Office Chairs. This is one area of chair design and functionality that has come into its own over the last few years. Manufacturers are realizing that people want office chairs that provide comfort all day long and will not send you home with a back ache. Or perhaps you are concerned about the comfort of your clients that visit your office. Office chairs, although they don't always look like it has been designed with comfort in mind. Even if sitting for 2-3 hours in this chair, your body will love you. A good office chair should not be overlooked as an essential piece of equipment to not only your work but your well being.
After about four years of making do I broke down and bought a chair at one of those big box office stores. A high-back office chair looked so professional that I went with that style. I couldn't afford a leather chair like my dad had, so I went with a fabric-covered chair. I thought I'd really improved my seating arrangement. I had softened the seat, but I wasn't any more comfortable than I had been before. Sure I now had a swivel chair -- unlike any of my dining room chairs that I'd used, but the first one just didn't fit me. I have now been through more chairs I could almost start my own office chair store!
My first ergonomic chair had an interesting and promising design. I had two problems with it, though. The small issue was that the chair tilted me forward and I had to fight to keep the seat level -- I guess the base was too tall for me. But, the biggest issue was the smell. For the first two weeks I couldn't be in my office for more than two hours at a time because the smell would bother my sinuses so much. It surprised me the smell lasted so long, especially given that my office was in the yurt at the time, and the yurt has a good ventilation system (lovely way of saying the air exchange through and around the walls was active). Even after a week-long trip the smell overpowered me. Fortunately it didn't bother My Bigger Half's assistant, so he bought it from me for her to use (she got to graduate from one of my office chair experiments). So much for that ergonomic desk chair.
